Sleepy Saturday

For me, that is. Our westie visitor starting whining at 7 a.m. to be let out of her crate. I figured I'd try to let her out so she could do her business and then put her back in so I could get some more sleep, but that didn't happen. Her whining woke Oscar, who would usually be quiet until we get up to let him out (which, on Saturdays, would be around 9 or 10). In the hopes of being able to go back to bed, I tried to keep them both quiet with peanut-butter stuffed Kongs in their crates (which were in separate rooms so they wouldn't try to get to each other) but that didn't work. So it was an early morning for me. Luckily, it has finally stopped raining, so I just let them run around in the backyard for over an hour and then brought them back inside to play some more. I plan on taking a long nap later to make up for not being able to sleep in!

For now, I've got some sweet potato treats baking in the oven. It's been a while since I made my own treats for Oscar. I was on quite a treat-making run for a while there, but then I got lazy. Now it's back in the kitchen! Oscar's first birthday is coming up soon, so I have to decide whether I'm going to be ambitious and make something lovely, or if I'll just buy something. Decisions, decisions.

These make the house smell lovely!

Sometimes it's good to get an early morning. You'll get so many extra hours to do what you have wanted to do but have been putting off...like making those treats.

It's true, Oskar...I conceded defeat to the westie long ago. But she's been picked up by her owner now, so the house is back to normal. Yay! The extra time was useful though - Oscar ran around for a while this morning with the westie, then we walked the dogs, and then I cleaned the sunroom where his pen is. Very productive! I guess there's an upside to being the early bird.

Hi Y'all,

What a good fella you are Oscar!

Heck, if I'm going to get my Human up before daybreak during the week, I'm gettin' her up at the same time on the weekends!

What's a routine if you don't stick to it?

Y'all come by now,
Hawk aka BrownDog

My Oscar loves sweet potato, too! To be honest, he enjoys anything edible. LOL!

I'll be enthusiastically following your blog to see what your little Oscar is up to. :D

You must have done a "high-five" to yourself when your houseguest was collected. Now you have time to plan the FIRST birthday of someone special! Rubie's mum.
